If you’re wondering what does Snapchat+ do and how to get the black badge, read on to find out.

What is Snapchat Plus?

Snapchat Plus is a premium subscription offered by Snapchat that lets users access new features that are exclusively available to those who have subscribed. The subscription costs $3.99 USD per month and the price may vary depending on your location and currency.

With the Snapchat+ subscription, you get these new features:

  • Ghost Trails: Find out where your friends have been in the past 24 hours by viewing their trails on the Snap Map. You can only see it for friends that share their location with you.
  • #1 Best Friend: Pin one best friend to the top of your chats list. You can only pin one friend at a time.
  • Friend Solar Systems: This new feature displays a golden “Best Friends” or “Friends” badge on some users’ profiles. It indicates that you are one of their eight closest friends on Snapchat.
  • Find out how many friends have rewatched your stories. Snapchat displays the 👀 emoji below stories that have been rewatched. The number next to the eye emoji indicates how many friends have rewatched a story.
  • Change the Snapchat app icon.

In addition, you get access to the beta and pre-release features made available to Snapchat+ users.

If you’re a frequent user of Snapchat, getting the Plus subscription is a way of showing support for the app’s developers and helping them keep up with the development and maintenance costs.
